Is touching my private parts in a non-masturbatory way mortally sinful or venially sinful? Originally when I was struggling with my masturbation addiction (which I’m making good success in overcoming it, but I’m not completely free form it yet) I would, let’s just say use physical force to resist it, which no doubt is not a good idea but is it mortally sinful? Other times, including this morning, I wasn’t using physical resistance but once or twice I touched myself in a non-masturbatory way. Are they both mortally sinful? Is one mortally sinful? Or is one mortally sinful and one venially sinful? I confessed the resistance part and am trying not to do it any more.
God bless you
